David Walliams And Matt Lucas Are 'Talking About' Little Britain Revival

David Walliams And Matt Lucas Are 'Talking About' Little Britain Revival

It's been 12 years since Little Britain last graced our screens and now we might be in for a revival.

David Walliams and Matt Lucas, who created and starred in the sketch show, are 'talking about' bringing it back.

David revealed the news on today's (Monday) This Morning, when he joined Holly and Phil in the studio.

Referring to persistent rumours that the show might return, Holly Willoughby asked the Britain's Got Talent judge: "So, Little Britain? Just to put that to bed slightly... or is there going to be more?"

David responded: "Well, we might do, we are just talking about it at the moment.

"Matt has his last night in Les Miserables stage show tonight and we are meeting up to speak about our future plans.

"We did a special episode called Little Brexit that we started on Radio 4, and yeah, we would love to do more - or maybe something new."

The Little Britain Brexit special took place back in October, and was the last time the pair joined forces.

Little Brexit saw some of their most famous characters making their much awaited return, including Vicky Pollard, and the memorable due of Lou and Andy.

Walliams and Lucas have famously had clashes in the past - with one occasion resulting in a backstage fight.

However, David Walliams has said that not only are they different people than they were all that time ago, but they would also need to rethink their approach to the show to keep up with the times.

Speaking to Radio Times last year, he said: "You'd definitely do it differently. Because it's a different time now. You'd make any comedy differently. We started working on Little Britain nearly 20 years ago, because it was on radio first.

"It's hard to say specifically how it would be different. There's all kinds of tolerances that change. People understand people's predicaments more now. Maybe it's, 'We see this differently, we've got more information,' and it would be a different type of joke."

When Matt Lucas appeared on Loose Women he said that the pair would be unlikely to return to certain characters.

He said: "There was a character who was a rubbish transvestite who said 'I'm a lady'. She was fun at the time but I think we look differently at the transgender community now and it would be very hard to do that now.

"It would be very hard to play characters of other races now and even Marjorie. People talk about that now in terms of fat shaming. We would definitely approach it very differently."
